An NHL veteran of 12 seasons, Chris Drury has just been named Associate General Manager of the club he used to play for, the New York Rangers.
There was previous buzz about Drury potentially being interviewed by the Penguins for the position of General Manager, perhaps this move by the Rangers was to keep Drury put with the organization. Regardless, it is well deserved.
Chris Drury played 4 season for the rangers putting together 62 goals, 89 assists for 151 points in 264 games.
